Photobucket paywall

It seems Photobucket are no longer allowing people to post images via an image code on forums unless they pay a monthly fee. If like mine your forums have thousands of images from photobucket, I expect to see them replaced with a little red cross soon. :(

That's the problems with remotely hosted photos anyway. That's why I forbid that.

Get that downloader Xenforo addon that makes a local copy of remotely hosted images.

My forums go back to around 2005 where photobucket was used an awful lot. It's really bad what they are doing.

Kind of sucks if you already had people post images from photobucket. Imgur has always been what I use. Seems to be the best alternative in my opinion.

Some users on reddit reporting certain hobbiest forums have been trashed due to this.

It's worth remembering that lots of the images are still accessible if you copu the url and open it in a seperate browser window so it's not hotlinked. Bit of a pain, bit if the image has important info it could be a life safer for you

Can someone please provide a photobucket link to an image which is blocked, I would like to test some new code in the Convert Image All add-on.

Me thinks @AndyB is working on fixing all broken images by downloading and saving the image locally even after the hotlink is broken? That would be cool.....
